Segja mun ek til nafns míns
þótt ek sekr sják
ok til allz öðlis:
Ek em Óðins sonr,
en Magna faðir,
við Þór knáttu hér dæma!
Hins vil ek nú spyrja
hvað þú heitir. (eddic or germanic)
(‘I’d tell my name, even if I were outlawed,
and my origin to all: I am Odin’s son,
brother of Meili, father of Magni,
powerful gods-leader; with Thor you converse here!
This I’ll ask now, what you are called.’
